Talk about being sleek, elegant, classy, and mysterious. Talk about being handsome, but in the aspect of a dining venue. Do you know what we are talking about? It’s a steakhouse, baby; specifically Marble + Grain Steakhouse of bai Hotel in Cebu.
Complete with comfy individual and double couches, a wine cellar, a striking bar, well-thought of decors, and upscale feel, Marble + Grain Steakhouse is really that dining place great for special celebrations, intimate eat outs, and even just a casual day you want to feel extra about.
Before anything else, Marble + Grain Steakhouse first served us their complimentary starter while waiting for our mains. It was a serving of sliced baguette alongside balsamic vinegar with olive oil and spreads such as herbed butter, red wine butter, and parmesan cheese.
And just right in time, our entrees prepared by Chef Pablo himself kept coming. We started with their Grilled Ostrich Steak (Php 1350) which has mushroom risotto, grilled vegetable sauce, and corn crisp. This was our first to try ostrich and we could say that we would be going for it again.
Next to that was one of our favorites. The Grilled Kurobuta Pork Chop (Php 1750) is such a dream with creamy mustard potato, apple chutney, and pommery mustard. Really, this one is a must-try, we promise!
Another must-try that we got to finish in a few minutes was their Dry Aged Bun Less Burger (Php 1050) that comes with foie gras, sautéed mushroom, blueberry compote, and chunky fries! This one is actually a surprise, just like how it was actually made by the Chefs. They were just looking for a new dish to add to their menu by using some of the extra meat they have and tada (!), this burger was born!
After that, we opted for their Rack of Pork Ribs (Php 1100) which is a sumptuous classic with dry spice rub, barbeque sauce, and grilled sweet corn on the side. You definitely won’t be regretting having this one, so try this one, too.
Taking a short break from meats, we got dive into a dish highlighting a bounty of the sea. Their Pistachio Crusted Seabass (Php 1550) is such a creative dish by the Chef as this one has mussel provencal sauce and fettuccine of zucchini. The sauce really elevated this dish and we are so living for it!
Going back to our meaty adventure, of course we are not to say pass on Marble + Grain Steakhouse’s Specialty Aged Steaks, specifically their Dry Aged Prime Cut Ribeye – Bone In (450g Php 4200). This delectable plate of steak comes with chef’s signature sauce. You can add foie gras (Php 400) or king prawns (Php 400) for that extra umph!
To give us sweet lovely kisses, Marble + Grain Steakhouse served us two of their bestselling sweet treats! The first one was the Chocolate Lava Dome (Php 350) which looks like a crystal ball when served, but actually has a lot of sweet surprise inside.
While the second dessert and the last dish we had here at Marble + Grain Steakhouse was their Crepe Suzette (Php 560) which is of classic orange crepes prepared table side by Chef Paulo himself. This one has that lovely citrus taste combined with the fun vanilla-flavored ice cream.
Truly, Chef Paulo Aviso alongside the whole of Marble + Grain Steakhouse gave us an exquisite dining experience. Their warm welcome and service together with the scrumptious dishes we had with them will forever be etched in our hearts, so if you want to have that kind of experience, too, then go dine in at Marble + Grain Steakhouse of bai Hotel Cebu.
